Aimed primarily at students and recent graduates aged 18 to 28, international volunteering is an enriching professional experience and a real springboard for an international career.
To be an international volunteer is to leave for a professional mission abroad while benefiting from a protective public status: the Volontaire International (VI) is placed under the supervision of the French Embassy.

From 6 to 24 months, the assignments can concern all professions and can be carried out :

  • in the company
  • within a French public body under the authority of the MAEE or the Ministry of the Economy and Finance
  • in a local foreign public structure
  • with international organizations or approved associations.

Volontariat International is not a form of voluntary work: VIEs receive a fixed monthly allowance, which varies according to the country of assignment.
